    Having installed Better Touch Tool I was amazed upon seeing their control panel with Live View, what is actually possible.

    However while BTT is good I have found that it clashes with the limited built in OSX gestures and makes them behave in a flaky way, so I have had to regrettably disable BTT.

    Why is it that Apple introduce a magic mouse with these amazing gesture capabilities but only provide a control panel for doing a few simple things?

    I seems to me that once they commit to a gesture they want to stick with it for the long haul. That's a theory of course.

    probably for the same reasons you found out while using BTT.

    Some of the gestures i can under stand but some i think are stupid as some people are not coordinated enough and have different sized hands to get it to work. for me i ve tried some of the more advance ones and it caused my carpel tunnel to hurt worse
